Internships for those seeking credentials with the Assemblies of God
How long does an internship take?
Internships are a practical, hands-on ministry experience normally supervised by the intern’s home church pastor. Because the internship prayer journal requires six months to complete, the internship is a minimum of six months. Interns have up to 2 years to complete their internship requirements.
What does It Cost?
The cost for your Internship is a one-time registration fee of $70 (for MNSOM) and a recommended honorarium to your Mentor of $100. A book will also be assigned and that is a separate cost.
I am working toward credentials. When do I start my internship?
In the Minnesota District, the credential application deadline is October 1 each year. Credentials are received during the District Council the following spring. This requires the six-month internship must be started by April 1 in order to complete the requirements to receive credentials in the following year.
Who Supervises my Internship?
Typically, the Internship mentor is your church Pastor. All Mentors must be Assemblies of God Ministers, must be one credential level higher than the level the intern candidate is seeking to complete and needs to be approved bu the MNSOM Director. A Mentor Covenant must be completed and sent for approval during the first month of internship. For approval, make a copy of the signed Mentor Covenant and return it to the the District Office:
